Jagoda Buic is a renowned textile artist and sculptor who in the 1970s entered the international art stage beginning with the ROSK international exhibition in Ireland in 1971. Entitled "La poesie de la vision", the exhibition was organized by James Sweeney, the director of the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Werner Schmalenbach, the director of the Kunsthalle in Dusseldorf, and Ponte Hunten, the director of the Centre Pompidou in Paris. It was in Ireland that Jagoda met Henry Moore, who felt enthusiastic about her art and became a close friend. The master sculptor's positive feedback as well as James Sweeney's admiration were strong influences on the development of her artistic expression. During this prestigious exhibition, the work of Jagoda Buic aroused considerable interest among art historians and museum directors and in 1975, Buic held an independent exhibition at the Museum of Modern Arts of the City of Paris. Later that year, she was awarded the main prize at the XIII biennial art festival in Sao Paulo.
Acquired in Brussels in 1984.
Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
